Thanks for this mix! For some strange reason, the Cairo Orchestra track appears with a different title in my favorite tracks list ("Ikhtayar oud")... Nevermind ;)

Thanks for your comment dear friend!
I think it is "Sallam Alay", a preview of the track can be found here
I crosschecked it also with this youtube video,

the version "Sallam Alay" from the "Passion of Belly Dance" CD (I use this version in my mix) combines Ikhtayar Oud + Zikrayat Al Nay + Sallam Alay from the Cairo Orchestra as one track :)
